  • Articles and reports: 11-008-X19980034006
    Description:

    This study concentrates on the St. Lawrence River Valley, highlighting how the storm was dealt with and its aftermath.

    Release date: 1998-12-14

  • Table: 16F0002X
    Description:

    This report presents results and analysis of the Waste Management Industry Survey: Government Sector. The survey gathers information on waste collection, disposal and recycling practices of Canadian municipalities. The document provides an overview of waste management activities in large municipalities (5 000 or more residents). More than three quarters of the Canadian population are represented in this survey, allowing for estimates of municipal solid waste at the national level and for selected regional groupings. The report also presents information on waste management expenditures by local governments, including expenditures for services provided by contractors and by government employees.

  • Table: 16F0003X
    Description:

    This report presents results of the Waste Management Industry Survey, 1995, which gathered information on the financial characteristics and waste management activities undertaken in the business sector.

    Release date: 1998-07-23

  • Thematic map: 16F0021X
    Description:

    In early 1998, 3 successive storm fronts dropped as much as 110 millimeters of freezing rain through parts of Eastern Canada. This ice storm had a notable impact on the hundreds of thousands of people who suffered electricity outages which, in some cases, lasted longer than one month. But other effects were also felt and continue to be: human lives were lost, livestock perished, ecosystems were damaged, economies were disrupted, emergency response systems were strained beyond capacity. In short, Ice Storm 98 was an event that will not soon be forgotten.

    This Statistics Canada publication gathers a series of six annotated maps and tables illustrating some of the impact the meteorological event had as it stormed through the St. Lawrence River Valley: population, employment, retail sales, vegetation cover, dairy cows and sugar maple taps are illustrated and briefly discussed.

  • Table: 68-513-X19970013572
    Description:

    The inspiration and content of this volume owe much to Larry Kotlikoff, Alan Auerbach and their collaborators for their pioneering work in the development of Generational Accounting. These papers include the latest efforts to apply their accounting framework to Canada as well as numerous extensions of parallel thinking to a far broader range of legacies. Both of these lines of research make use of Statistics Canada's unmatched sources of data and analytical capacities, so the sponsorship and content of this book make a natural match.

  • Articles and reports: 61-532-X19970013493
    Description:

    The objective of this brief paper is to describe recent trends in the merger and acquisition (M&A) activity in the forest products industry in Canada. The two driving forces most often cited in M&A activity are rising capital costs and full product line servicing. Both of these factors have been at play at various times in the history of forest products industry. However, over the last few years there has been a growing national and global perception that current wood supplies would not be able to satisfy future demand. While the trend away from diversification of earlier decades towards the more recent consolidation of "core" product lines may be the stated reason for the many cases of restructuring, it is felt that the real driving force is the increasing uncertainty associated with raw material supplies. This in turn suggests that possible future "inter-regional" M&A activity may help to secure wood fibre supplies - directly or indirectly - and mitigate increases.
